Overview

After 30 years of hard work, a successful executive from Dallas, Texas, takes a leave of absence from his employer to embark on a road trip with his two preteens. The ultimate purpose is to see his aged father in New Jersey, but the trip takes on new, unplanned dimensions as the family goes across the United States. The family's travels become a very personal journey, as they discover what it means to be a parent, the meaning of family and God, and the serious issues that affect today's world. There's also abundant laughter, there's Cracker Barrel, there's Civil War battlefields, there's "Confederate" turtles, and there's Beanie Babies. And what becomes most important is the lasting consequence of this family's personal odyssey: a reconfirmation of the love and devotion they have for each other.

Please take a trip with the Price Family Robinson as they go north to New Jersey and see so much of America, so much more than just the passing scenery.
